Well done Mary, Texture is so back in now, it is definitely the way to go for movement without fuss. There are some wonderful new innovations on the texture front to really help with condition and hold. I would suggest you try a great new trio, just made for curl. Itís by Senscience and itís called the íCurl Define collectioní. It consists of shampoo, conditioner and the curl íActivate creamí; they are all formulated to work with your curl for more defined shape and ultimate condition. Whether you are defusing your shape or naturally drying you will find this Senscience range will really help your results, enjoy the wave!





Emma asks:
I currently have dark brown chin length textured hair. I am trying to get to a cool platinum blonde; however I had a disaster with a previous hairdresser who put a paint box red permanent colour onto my then naturally blonde hair. I have spent the past year and a half trying to get back to blonde with no avail. It was last bleached 6 months ago and the outcome was an orangey/yellow brassy colour. Are there any new products or techniques that my hairdresser could use to get me back to platinum blonde? Any advice given would be much appreciated.

Sounds like you been through the wars a bit. Your natural hair is obviously lighter than what you have on now and from what I can gather from your email, a series of mistakes has had you recovering one problem after another. Now you are back to dark brown and once more want to bite the bullet and try for blonde! But the fact of the matter is you have dark colour on your hair how and lifting colour out is never easy even for the experts. It depends on how many layers of colour they are trying to break through. I know itís hard; but weíre coming up for summer now and my suggestion to get you where you want to be would be to start with a really cool shorter cut! Get rid of the you, you donít want and start a fresh. You have to keep re-colouring messes, where you could have a cute little cut and then go blonde with no problem. It will soon grow and you can try different looks along the way as well as different blonde shades....Everyone loves Marilyn, but Annie Lenox is dammed hot too!!

Happy Summer!







Gemma asks:
I wonder if you can help me, I have recently had an operation and a portion of my hair has been shaved off (a patch roughly 8 x 5cms on the front of my head to the right side). The rest of my hair is near shoulder length...Obviously I need my hair cut but donít feel a short style would suit me. The hair on my shaved patch has grown to roughly 1-cm! My face shape is ovalish. I hope you can help and find a style that may suit!

Well I am glad to hear you are recovering well and the good news is that you have an excellent face shape for most styles short or long. But if you are used to a longer look and wish to keep your hair, you may consider layering it a little more, while the front is growing scarfís could look really cool (a kinda retro 60ís look). Also once the front area is around 8cm or so: you could consider extensions to blend the shorter area with the layered cut? Itís a great way to blend a look if you want to maintain the length. By layering for now, you could add a strong fringe and dry the hair forward and soft to cover the area. These are just a few ideas; but you canít beat a live consultation with a hairdresser, just to get some ideas. Good Luck with everything and enjoy your new look.
